Dolphins announce more assistants hired

The Dolphins have just announced the hiring of Lou Anarumo as their defensive backs coach, Phil McGeohan as their assistant wide receivers coach and Ken O'Keefe as their wide receivers coach.

As is no surprise, Brian Daboll, the offensive coordinator in 2011, has accepted the job to be offensive coordinator in Kansas City.

Anarumo (pronounced ann-UH-room-OH) comes to Miami after eight seasons as the defensive backs coach at Purdue University. Anarumo joined the Purdue staff following three seasons at Marshall, where he coached the defensive backs from 2001 to 2003. He also served as special teams coordinator in 2003. Prior to his stint at Marshall, Anarumo was assistant head coach at Harvard from 1995 to 2000, working with the defensive backs and coordinating the special teams.

McGeoghan (pronounced muh-GAY-gehn) joins Miami after spending three seasons as the wide receivers coach at the University of South Florida. McGeoghan played in the NFL for four seasons with the New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos, Oakland Raiders and the New York Jets - in addition to playing in NFL Europe for the Berlin Thunder.

I don't know what it is with the Dolphins and their coaching hires for wide receivers but does it really take two coaches to handle five or six guys? The Dolphins had a similar setup last year with Steve Bush and Ike Hilliard.

O'Keefe joins the Dolphins after spending the previous 13 seasons as offensive coordinator at the University of Iowa.

None of these additions have NFL coaching experience.

Ireland has made good picks & signing in his 1st yr without the tuna. He didn't reach for a QB like other teams and he got good value with draft picks. Reggie Bush fooled me but not him.

What a joke Coaching staff.

Too many chiefs, not enough Indians!

I don't post on any blog.But have been a dolphin's fan my whole life some 55 plus years,sold sodas and hot dog in the Orange bowl 1501 NW 3rd Street Miami,When you can't give a Blessing to a new coaching staff then all i can say is GOD BLESS THE DOLPHINS.

I live in Meadville, Pa now and remember what O'Keefe and Philbin accomplished with our College team. 1 loss in 3 years, undefeated seasons and a National Championship trophy. They know how to motivate and how to win. Give them a chance to succeed before writing them off.

Is the O'Keefe hiring a precursor to a trade for Ricky Stanzi?
